Constellation Spotters

User Rating:  / 0

This week in science we learned about constellations. We discovered that constellations are patterns of stars in the sky. Many constellations have names and stories that go with them.

Clcik on the image below to find out more about constellations.


After finding out about the many shapes the constellations make, we created our own constellation telescope. These were the instrctions we followed:

1. Cut out a small circle from the black card a size that will fit on the end of the cardboard tube

2. Mark on a constellation onto the black card with a pencil.

3. Pierce each star with a pencil with bluetac underneath.

4. Stick the black card on the end of the cardboard tube and look through.


We evaluated our finished product afterwards - perhaps try to make one at home, using what you learned from your first attempt.
